8. Joe Pesci was excellent and so was that little girl that was the daughter, Pacino was fun to watch.

 

The movie is an hour too long though and seems like self indulgent reminiscing by the director, it really really drags at times and seemingly for no reason but unwillingness to edit out long, useless and boring scenes.

9. I have to agree that

it needed a lot of editing. I stuck with it and it was worth it, but it can be a slog at times.

DeNiro was good, Pesci was wonderful, and I did love the child star that played Peggy. She could have a future, she is so expressive, without speaking.

But it was Pacino who really impressed me. I felt like I was watching Jimmy Hoffa, he captured him perfectly.

There will be several Oscar nominations, no doubt.

12. Watching it now

Long, but very good. It would be interesting to see how much of this is factual.

14. It's the antidote to the brashness of Goodfellas (which I still love).


It's fascinating but ultimately sorrowful.

15. DeNiro is a national treasure!

We're watching it in segments. It stays with you even after you're not watching it.

I'm sure there will be many well-deserved awards.

17. Remarkable in its understatement...

We Philly folk know “the Villa” well (Villa di Roma) the restaurant in the film. 938 S 9th st

Terrific film. The acting and direction is superb.
